'I consider that Our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that WILL be revealed in Us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons and daughters of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creationsitself will be LIBERATED from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the Children of God.
We KNOW that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of child-birth right up to the present time. Not only so, but We Ourselves who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as We we wait eagerly for the adoption of sons and daughters, the redemption of Our bodies. For in this hope We WERE saved. But, hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what They already have? But if We hope for what We do not YET have, We wait for it patiently.
In the same way, the Spirit helps Us in Our weakness. we do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for Us with groans that words cannot express. And He who searches Our HEARTS knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the Saints in accordance with God's will'. Romans 8;18-27 Father,I thank You that the Spirit and Jesus Himself intercede for Us - helping Us in Our weakness and acting to bring about God's will here'. Thank You that We wait with Your hope in Our hearts and KNOW that great things - future glory- are ahead. Of this We have no doubt. Thank You for helping Us wait in confident hope and patient expectation. Amen.
Faith is ...
